Nigeria In Crisis: Boko Haram Kidnap 8 more girls

 Boko Haram Kidnap 8 more girls

Boko Haram gunmen kidnapped eight girls aged 12 to 15 from a village near Maduguri in northeast Nigeria overnight, police and residents said on Tuesday in the midst of the current controversy of 276 missing Chibok schoolgirls. 

"They were many, and all of them carried guns. They came in two vehicles painted in army colour. They started shooting in our village," said Lazarus Musa, a resident of Warabe, where the attack happened.

A police source, who wanted to remain anonymous said the girls were taken away on trucks, along with looted livestock and food. The Islamist rebels are still holding more than 200 girls they abducted from a secondary school on April 14
